Hemorrhoid Banding

Hemorrhoid banding is a safe and painless treatment that gets rid of hemorrhoids completely. Unlike other gastrointestinal offices, Lotsu Digestive Health and Nutrition Center offers this 10-minute procedure in the comfort of our own state-of-the-art facility.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopies are performed for a variety of reasons, and we are committed to creating individualized treatment plans for each patient. Whether your colonoscopy is a screening for colon cancer or an investigation due to abnormal abdominal discomfort, blood, or bowel habit, we will fully prepare you in advance and answer any questions you might have.

EGD

Upper endoscopy, also known as esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), is a procedure we use to examine the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine. Our anesthesia staff administers IV conscious sedation to our EGD patients to ensure a comfortable, safe, and pain-free experience.

At Lotsu Digestive Health and Nutrition Center™, Lotsu offers multiple procedures including upper endoscopy, wireless pH monitoring, wireless capsule endoscopy, colonoscopy, and hemorrhoid treatment to name a few. In addition to those procedures and therapies, Dr. Lotsu provides a detailed digestive health consultation for patients interested in weight loss, fitness training, or those with chronic gastrointestinal diseases.


We look forward to Treating you!
